We had sooo much fun yesterday! Here’s just a snippet.... there are loads of rides that kids from even 2yrs can go on depending on height, and sooo many diggers of all sizes and kind that the little ones can operate either on their own or with adults. We managed all the main rides and even Spin Dizzy (the biggest attraction on my final slide, which makes you feel... Dizzy) allowed the little ones on so long as they were above 90cm. We spent the whole day here and even then ran out of time for the Dodgems (Little Wiki was destrought 🤦🏻‍♀). We took a picnic and there are benches all over Diggerland, you just have to grab one while you can. The best thing was that although being told by the staff that it was really busy, we had barely any queuing or waiting time for the rides, often walking right onto them, which is ideal for the tiny kids who can’t wait and also meant we managed to see everything and do some of it a few times. By around 3PM most people had left also so we had our pick of the rides! My advice is to grab your tokens early though as they stop selling them at 4:50PM and close at 5 on the dot. It’s all mainly outdoors which is awesome on a great day like yesterday but would be harder on a wet day, although they also have an indoor picnic area and soft play if it does rain a bit. And a huge indoor cafe too. There’s baby changing, a huge gift shop and an ice cream van too! A couple of the attractions are extra, the dodgems need a token from the gift shop and some smaller ride on toys need a pound although I can’t see the reason for that. Overall it’s a really good day out, but a family of four is likely to cost just over £80. As always, great fun at a park like this will come at a cost but I would recommend you do add it to your list of must do days out for your little ones. It’s a great experience to dig pits and work diggers that you won’t get elsewhere on this scale. We absolutely LOVED IT. (Diggerland has locations in Kent, Devon, Yorkshire and Durham)

Diggerland is a theme park that makes every child (and grown mans!) dreams comes true! It is a unique concept but to be quite honest a genius one and we have been visiting with our family for several years. The park we visited was located in Kent, there are also 3 other locations available within the UK (Devon, Durham and Yorkshire). If you aren’t familiar, most of the attractions at Diggerland are made out of plant hire equipment. The rides feature everything from massive diggers to small dumpers and everything in between. The day we were invited was a little overcast but this is actually the sort of place that really doesn’t matter! Just pop on wellies and waterproofs and you are good to go! ON ARRIVAL On arrival, we briefly queued to collect our tickets and had to give little Ronnie a quick height check. Luckily he is now bang on the 90cm mark which meant for this visit he was able to go on the majority of the rides. Ronnie is actually a smallish (nearly) 3 year old and so this was great news that he would be able to join in as he often misses out. MINI DIGGERS Tickets collected and Reece and Jessica immediately got competitive. They both had a go at picking up bricks and following on from this they decided to carry the competition on with ”hook a duck”, and finally the best of three decider was a quick game of skittles. All of these activities involve a full-size Komatsu PC14 and different end goals to practice the use of the machine. This includes a mini wrecking ball for the skittles game! This time round Scott was able to ride along with Ronnie so he had a good go too! TRACTOR RIDE There is Train ride to see the sights of the park. The carriages are pulled along by a dumper, and consist of a main lead carriage and kiddie follow carts. My guys of course always wanting to be independent love to travel in the follow carts! The follow carts have their own steering wheel and horn to beep! JESSICA (10) AND REECE (13) DRIVE A REAL CAR This is always the highlight of the trip for the older ones, the opportunity to drive a fully functioning car! Both Jess and Reece were able to take Ronnie and I for a quick spin around a simple off-road course in an 4×4. Even though they have a Diggerland staff sat next to them the whole way (phew!), the kids always feel so grown up when taking part in this experience. Ronnie thought being driven round by his brother and sister was hilarious too! THE DIGGERS It’s not a trip to Diggerland without moving some mud in one of the large excavator machines! I noticed when taking photos of the kids on this one that a lot of the participants were in fact adults…………..who wouldn’t want to play diggers I guess! OTHER RIDES WE TRIED OUT The size of the park and the really efficient running results in queue times that are relatively short. This means the kids get to ride as much as possible and really does boost the overall experience. Over the remainder of the day they were lifted 50ft high by the Sky Shuttle, which is a massive crane like vehicle. This provides a superb view of the whole of the park and the River Medway. The kids also had a go on the Dig-A-Round which is a digger themed take on the traditional carousel. Jessica and Reece drove some small electric carts and Ronnie had a number of goes on the Go-Karts aimed at smaller children. LUNCH AT THE DIG INN The kids were getting peckish, so we headed to The Dig Inn for a bite to eat. There is also an picnic area with picnic tables both inside and outside. The food selection in the restaurant looked varied, of good size portions and reasonably priced. The toilet facilities had good baby changing. There was also a large soft play area adjacent to the restaurant. SPIN DIZZY The older two then braved the famous ”Spin Dizzy” ride…………..not for the faint-hearted! You take your seat in the bucket of the excavator and are spun around and around. It then stops. You are then spun in the other direction! Horrific if you ask me but Jess and Reece seem to love it! This is a relatively small theme park, a large number of rides fit into a small area. This meant we did cram in a lot of rides, but also made time for a lunch stop and a visit to the indoor play area. Also you are never too far away from the refreshments or the toilets. An added bonus was that Ronnie didn’t have to walk for miles during the day meaning we didn’t need to take a buggy in with us! It really was a great visit and the kids had a super day. We will definitely be returning soon!

Brilliant brilliant day out made up of activities and rides using real life diggers. There are rides that go round and round, or up and down, huge diggers that you can drive around muddy tracks, go on safari in a 4x4 and enjoy a train ride pulled by a huge JCB. There are loads of other activities such a go karts, dodgems, Jeep driving using diggers to shift earth, to dig up buried treasure, or even to hook a duck and many more. Kids have to be at least 90cm to be able to access many of the activities. Each activity comes with height restrictions for being able to take part with an adult or do the ride solo. Our 4 year old who is 1.08m was able to access everything either on his own or with one of us. We went on the first day of the summer holidays and were able to walk onto any of the activities. At busier times I can imagine there are long queues. We took a picnic for which there are plenty of tables. Inside there is a small soft play and a cafe, which we didn’t use. Plenty of parking which was free. Great value, well worth the £20 ticket if you book online in advance. We spent a good 4.5 hours going on everything.
